Doing legal research online can be frustrating and time consuming; but,this book changes everything! It not only points you in the right direction (The Best Legal Sites), it provides information on which sites to avoid (The Worst Legal Sites).

There are 24 chapters in all. Most of them cover specific legal arenas, such as bankruptcy, criminal law, environmental resources, estate planning, family law, intellectual property, employment, and real estate. Several chapters are specifically for the legal profession and include: Managing and Marketing Your Practice, CLE Online, and Best Medical Sites for Trial Lawyers.

There are three additional informative segments included as appendixes: Getting to Know the Supreme Court, Finding Court Opinions Online, and State Laws on the Internet.

The book is well organized and easy to use. Paralegals, attorneys, and anyone else doing legal research online will benefit from the resources offered in this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a superior book that will be an asset to any lawyer using the Internet. Ambrogi is a recognized expert, author of a regular column in Law Technology News, and this book benefits from his detailed knowledge of the subject. Well organized and well written, this book shows how good an Internet legal reference can be.
